Orlando Pirates head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, has praised Thembinkosi Lorch for his contribution to the team.
Since he overcame his injury troubles, Lorch has made consecutive starts in eight Absa Premiership matches for Sredojevic’s side.
The 25-year-old scored in consecutive matches for Bucs in the Telkom Knockout against AmaZulu (two goals) and Kaizer Chiefs respectively, as the Soweto giants reached the final of the competition.
Speaking to the media, after Bucs’ 0-0 draw with Maritzburg United at the weekend, Sredojevic showered the Bafana Bafana international with praise for his contribution to the team.
“If as a coach I need to speak, I together with the technical team am pleased to have a player of this magnitude and kind. We remember when he was injured last year, he was maybe…His injury against AmaZulu was maybe the crucial aspect that we didn’t go all the way and win the league last year (season). But he has come strongly back and the way he applies himself, the way he does what we agree and (expresses) his talent and performance, we are really happy to have super Nyoso around us,” Sredojevic told the media.
Lorch made 14 league starts for the Buccaneers last season.
